Monday Update Post 4-20-15

These are some posts from the later part of last week in case you missed them:
Native Hip-Hop
For My Superhero Fans with Kids
BINGO: column
Making a Comic Book Page
Librarygeek's Crowdfunded Works

The April Crowdfunding Creative Jam ran this weekend. I wrote six poems, one of them already posted as the freebie. I also sponsored a story by DW user Dialecticdreamer.

There are two new guide pages for threads in the Polychrome Heroics series: Antimatter & Stalwart Stan in Omaha, Nebraska and Aquariana mostly in the Republic of the Maldives.  Use these pages to follow the storylines in sequence, reading from the top down.  Character lists and summaries help you figure out what's going on in each installment.

The half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics is open from Monday, April 20-Sunday, April 26.  The quarter-price option is available for anyone who wants to spend $100 or more.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Settled" is the third piece of the Polychrome Heroics triptych about the fight at SPOON.  It now complete, and you can see some of the fallout from Hannah's actions.

Torn World writing update:
Approved as canon: "Unicorns on Parade" "Spruce Deer" "Wandering the Heights" (poetry).  Back to me for edits: "Winterheart" (parts 2-3), "Stinging Like Nettles"  "Off the Clock" (poetry).  Currently in front of the canon board: "Ghost Bat" (nonfiction). Drafted: "Like Ash Before the Wind," "From Dark to Bright," "The Inappropriate But Useful Disposal of Lettuce" "A Thin Red Trail" (fiction), "Changes in the Wind" (poetry), "Southern Breads" "Tangleweed Article" (articles), Jularei (character sheet).  In revision at home: "Water Dance," "When the Wind's Teeth Sing," "Raining Kittens," "Finding the Holes," "Broken Hopes," "Brewing Beauty," "Little Paws in the Licenses" (fiction), "The Smallest Invaders," "Raising the Future" "Beach Pies" "Unsolid Ground" (poetry).  Currently writing: "Catch of the Day," "A Cold Clear Night" (fiction).

Weather here is cloudy and blustery.  Snowdrops, daffodils, jonquils, grape hyacinths, forsythia, wild violets, gold currants, serviceberries, lilacs, redbuds, cherries, crabapples, and pear are blooming.  I've gotten one batch of asparagus.  I saw a pair of squirrels at eye-level from the upstairs window.
